Once installed, you can import and use the maxBy function in your typescript file like so:

import { maxBy } from 'lodash';

interface Person {
  name: string;
  age: number;

const people: Person[] = [
  { name: 'Alice', age: 25 },
  { name: 'Bob', age: 30 },
  { name: 'Charlie', age: 20 },

const oldestPerson = maxBy(people, (person) => person.age);

console.log(oldestPerson); // { name: 'Bob', age: 30 }

17 lines

In this example, we're finding the oldest person in an array of person objects by passing in the array and a callback function that returns the age property of each person object. The maxBy function returns the person object with the highest age property.
